oh dear thinks. we dared to ask. astra zeneca kovac jump into the spotlight again as the european medicines agency's vaccine chief links it to blood clots but the families of those who died after getting the shot demanding answers. twitter demands the removal of a decade old video of alleged u.s. war crimes good violates their platforms policy on graphic content. and in italy a march in support of struggling businesses turns violent with officers injured by protesters warning they won't survive a 3rd lockdown in a year. very
warm welcome from our team here in the russian capital and you're watching r.t. international with me. now fresh questions are being raised about the astra zeneca vaccine with the latest link leading to further calls for restrictions a senior official from the european medicines agency says there may be a connection between the job and blood clots although it's still unclear exactly how and why problems occur artie's it sure do but he has a story. those doubts have been raised once again this time by the top official of the european medicines agency at the may there are no calls for clarity to find out exactly what these links are potentially between us stress and red types of blood clots now see we've been talking to the lawyer representing 2 families here in france families whose loved ones died in the days after receiving astra zeneca job
and they say that they want ohmss and. they want to understand the investigation has been launched the autopsy has been requested and done the question for the moment is to find out if it was caused by the vaccine itself or by the way it was injected but today it seems highly likely that a link exists between astra zeneca japp and occurrence of the thrombosis we want to understand what happened and afterwards to find those responsible while the investigations are continuing into the death of a 24 year old medical student who's thought to have died from internal bleeding. investigation has already been launched fronts into the death of a 38 year old woman this is a woman from the south of france who is a social worker who received the astra zeneca job. as a result of the fact that she was a front line worker now in the days after receiving that job she was complaining of
having a quantum stint headache she was given medication from the doctors with that didn't help and in the end she was hospitalized and lated died and suggested that she die from a rare type of brain blood clot and it's this type of rare blood clot in the brain that has been linked to astra zeneca by the top officials the way this is the e.m.a.'s head device in strategy to say about the link we're trying to get the precise picture of would. this happening to define in detail the syndrome due to the vaccine in my opinion we can now say it is the reason so c. with the vaccine what causes this reaction however we still do not know now both the 38 year old woman and also the 24 year old medical student was said to be in very good health and the lawyer representing their families say their families are
not taking vaccination but what they want to ensure is that if these deaths are preventable that they can be prevented from other people losing their loved ones to . my concern and the concern of families is what we are calling preventable deaths in other words for certain people vaccine benefit risk assessment is obvious i'm speaking particularly about people over 55 years old in france the vaccine is restricted to people over 55 years of age so the benefit risk assessment should be made more details. now that concern is being felt more or more was this additional evidence seems to be emerging about the links between the astra zeneca vaccine and these rare types of blood clots the e.m.a.'s said it stands by the fact they gave the green light to astra zeneca saying that the risk benefit ratio we still positively on the side of astra zeneca and the world health
organization has also come out over the last few hours saying it also still believes in us through seneca saying it is still largely positive but as i said there is more and more evidence coming out that there are potentially these blood clots as a result and often last week it emerged that there were 30 cases in the u.k. that is said to have had an immediate impact here in france where the reputation of astra zeneca was already on the rocks over the weekend the american kalai said that they had seen a sense of. in the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of doses of us just and. ready for appointments for people to come in and have the job we're left because people are afraid of these possible side effects she's not called for a national campaign here in france to explain what the potential side effects are not just of astra zeneca but also the other vaccines that have already been
approved in the e.u. such as the 5 is a biotech vaccine. vaccine but the reality is when you've got to talk to him a official now making this significant link between these rare types of blood clots and deaths as a result of astra zeneca perhaps it's just a blow too much for the facts seen britain's health regulator is mulling restricting the use of astra zeneca as covert vaccine for younger people trials on children have also been put on hold as investigations continue into a link between the job and blood clots we have reaction on the streets of london. i had my 1st box in on the feel good book problem morons not get in there if you saw this some health condition she's not getting it simply because of the butt out clots and we do actually know someone who's had a stroke since get in the vaccines i'm not or about that you know because a lot of people has been vaccinated there ok this will be even more side effects
that we don't even know about this is just one thing the picking out they have no idea what this can for i guess the fear is a bit bigger actual problem we've got a good public health system that keep an eye on these things and obviously they'll be looking at the latest research but while the advice the still to take the vaccine i would still take the vaccine that. pakistan is looking to join the ranks of countries making russia's coronavirus job to bar the country grows our correspondents will report from the country later in the program. and respect into a top virology professor who traveled to china with the world health organization to probe the origins of the pandemic dominic dwyer told r.t. he's going underground it's been hard to get the truth for many reasons you can watch the full interview here throughout the day what did you find because as far as though we've seen in the media it's kind of inconclusive you can't even conclude it came from china clearly it's inconclusive as the minister was set to go there in
the 1st place course so this is truly a complex of the science is complex the politics is complex but look we went through it all out of data provided by the chinese you know a number of different eras. made a number of conclusions really about what further work needed to be done clearly we can figure out solutions 0 if you like. but we've got to go a long way to planning what needs to be done did any of the authorities in china say you shouldn't leave the womb you should be in italy given that without the bodies were circulating in italy. in september of 2019 way before december i mean there's no doubt the virus exploded in move and there's no question about that now the issue is was the virus circulating in other parts of the world 'd around that time or even a bit before and yes there is evidence mutually it's
a bit from spain as some from france or some from the united kingdom and what did you feel when reportedly you weren't given some of the data you wanted i mean have you got this rule patient into 174 covert patients from december 21000 the you were requesting that sort of set up to a number of things we are such chinese side to do before we got there including going back looking through the last couple of months before december trying to identify potential cases that they might have missed and we insisted on the work being done and they did it and they presented that work there were of course only there for a short period of time so not all the data that we would normally ask for in this sort of outbreak investigation was given to us then but the data is continuing to come forward. twitter is moving to correct reality once again this time the platform has targeted a once classified video showing alleged 2 u.s. war crimes the account of an r.t.
america correspondent has been suspended after posting the footage with twitter agreeing to lift a ban only after rachel blevins deleted the post but blevins told us the real issues that those responsible have not been held to account. they said that they were doing this because i violated their graphic content policy essentially because in that video you were watching civilians and journalists lose their lives and the context that they give behind that is to say that for the families of those victims that would be hard to watch that would be hard for that footage to be out there and to that extent they're correct about that i mean this is disturbing footage and yet at the same time it's also even more disturbing for those families to know that even though that footage has been out there the attackers the murderers who are responsible still have not been brought to justice 1st released by wiki leaks in 2010 the ones classified u.s. military video appears to show the indiscriminate shooting of more than
a dozen civilians in a back down suburb from an american helicopter among those killed were 2 employees of the reuters news agency wiki leaks that it obtained a video from a number of whistleblowers over the years the video that twitter claims breaks its rules has been posted by many of the users but it's posed as an arty journalist that triggered it system but blevins insists that although graphic the footage still needs to be brought to the public's attention. even though it has been a lot of anger since this footage was released those pilots those u.s. soldiers you see in that video who are literally murdering citizens civilians and journalists in broad daylight has no consequences for those actions even though we see this video circulating even though we see how for if they can how disturbing it is they still were allowed to walk free and it was the people who released that video such as chelsea manning and julian assange who brought it to light you
brought it to the public's interest they are the people who have been attacked and been blamed for this footage because here in the united states are major media organizations like say c.n.n. or fox news they don't show you footage like that they don't show you how her if it is a when the u.s. military commits these terrible war crimes in other countries they don't tell you what is actually going on with the so-called war on terrorism they don't take the time to ask those questions about why the u.s. is still station why they still have their military across the middle east where it is not wanted where it's a legal what we're seeing the increased aggressiveness of digital platforms where the people who gunned down those on arm civilians and journalists in iraq will never be held accountable for the crime that they committed although of course it's been documented through the courage of chelsea manning and julian assange and wiki leaks and this will not change under the biden ministration you have to remember that during the obama administration and obama's vice president
was of course joe biden expanded the targeted assassinations through militarized drones including against u.s. citizens. chain support of struggling italian businesses has turned violent in rome with protesters clashing with riot police in front of parliament. it was. the only rest was sparked by the extension of restrictions to the end of april they include the closure of all non-essential shops and take away only service for restaurants and cafes many venues have already gone bankrupt unable to withstand the financial pressure of a 3rd lockdown in a year leaving many italians furious at the prospect of more restrictions. she's young when cutting our chains in ourselves because we can't go ahead and accept the
situation we want to reclaim our jobs in our freedom we ask for an immediate end to the national walk down and for the immediate opening of all commercial activity without any restrictions regardless of the statistics related to the disease the fact we can't go out after tenet nights that we can't go where we want not respecting our rights which are constitutionally mandated as a form of tyranny. but the founder of an italian conservative think tank told us he believes government inconsistency is are driving people to dispair. it seems that people are so straight to be closer we don't have a date for him to head off to lock down we don't have a plan the for the next release and not a date to hold the next we simply don't know if they're locked down to move the i don't know in the head of state police we don't know if they look down the finish in the end make every week and every day the government changes they in the lows
and every week of the government to say that the lockdown that he did so next week says and this edition is trying to difficult for the victims of the world is the 1st article of our distribution say that italy is a democratic county police on the level so if the number of people keep the secret since 10 opening their shops can't go to the restaurant how they can sleep so i have to stand the people me understand the people that work in the streets that there's free and trying to see their goals and the big problem in our country in this equation is that the government don't have the money to have these people so that's why these people have i'm good to date with from which to a resurgent what are the important e-zine and he says you see that from the last year the d.c. or new lost in 1000000 jobs in our country so you can measure how these difficult economic solution is this is called either in this one so the government has to
have old people. also ahead in the program the usa has a record number of my points are trying to enter the country well that was denied entry of a run makeshift camps we have been story and more after this short break. when else seemed wrong. but old rules just. mean you get to shape out these days you can stick out to it and engagement equals betrayal . when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.

about october last year i was still actively trying to get on them since i've largely given up my attempt to get to get back to my country because the restrictions is taking place make it impossible for me to buy a ticket even if i even if i am i'm looking at paying maybe $10000.00 u.s. dollars upwards and then there's the flight assistance package which the government . offices but all those flights only leave from places like germany and paris. and something like mate if i was to leave there russia and then go to paris if i was to contract covet i wouldn't be eligible for that flight home because they only take people who. test negative 2 to carve it on the fly so if i did that i could just be stranded somewhere else completely and i would be unable to even get back
to russia if that was the case prime minister scott morrison have pledged to bring many if not all those stranded home by last christmas time space or again says the ongoing situations are simply unacceptable says in my possible it that i should not be all of a terribly deprived the right to return to my home country. the syrian government has used the biosecurity act which is something to explain away that it is an international disaster and that's why we on allowed to return home but now that is a year all these excuses of war and there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to get up get back this is a gross violation of all surrenders romance human rights. pakistan's pushing to manufacture a sputnik the ass hospitals reporting massive demand for russia's covert vaccine. reports from account to tell islamabad. pakistan has entered a new era in vaccinating its population against covert 19 while free government
subsidized vaccines are still only available to the senior population and while doctors the groups of risks private companies have now also been allowed to sell the vaccine to everybody willing the price is steep it stands at about $800.00 per 1000 jobs or brushes would need to be but well despite that despite the average salary here in pakistan being below $500.00 a month and we've seen q. was especially among younger pakistanis and lines to get russia's sputniks to be we were vaccinated to even sell seats across to so everyone seems to be very satisfied with the overall experience of good in this but the vaccine is very good. it's a very easy process without any pain we were x. needed and after 21 days to get the 2nd dose to finish the process. my motive is to protect myself and my family when we feel safe and secure it will start
a trickle down effect there is talk about herd immunity my message is that those who can afford it should be vaccinated as soon as possible. because being offered this hospital also and through other hospitals. that the reception has been so positive because people would like to work simply because people don't realise that this is the only way we're forward and they have a good will do now this process of kind of private vaccination isn't going without a hitch some venues have already reported that they have sold out and in some places like in the southern province of people had to queue for hours to get the job but in general well it is a promising trend given that pakistan has and avoided the fate of so many countries in the world where a certain percentage of the population went this event and the criticize. and in general not trust in the process of vaccination altogether pakistan has long shown
interest in the russian vaccines russia has done an excellent job of helping the world fight the brain damage the vaccine is a step forward in this direction we are committed to attract investments to pakistan and if possible producing this vaccine in our country but now that so many people in pakistan have shown that they want to get the vaccine that they are sensible that they want to get themselves protected against covert 19 this paves the way for further russia pakistan corporation. a record number of migrants tried to cross the americas southern border in march according to homeland security with a report suggesting the massive inflows will continue through to the autumn on the other side of the frontier they situations even worse with refugees gathering in makeshift card accounts after being rejected by the us.
and the fact is i've made it very clear within 100 days i'm going to send to the united states congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11000000 undocumented people and all of those so-called dreamers those docket kids they're going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship. let them know that we decided to come because the president said that she wanted to tramways that was separate as you know it it's something we didn't expect even though the president said that's of course he would hope as he still hasn't done anything.
but please really the story is very complicated because there's a lot and everything we've been through just to end up here like cats and dogs. it didn't. end up what it was that we can collect the necessities big by this to provide for our central american brothers who are in need but. these are people that are once again paying the price of politicians in that scene now. thank you matter who would have won whether it was biden or trump or. anyone else either of their respective parties really the same consequence would be seen
and we'd see a continuation of the policies that push people up north that push people from their homes as well as. here in the united states is kind of part of the bigger problem in the democratic party i think the democratic party likes to position itself as this kind of alternative to the quote unquote white nationalist republican party etc and so they say things particularly those at the top leadership like joe biden like this and they. are trying to score political points and we see this kind of rhetoric this welcoming. push by the democratic party but then when push comes to shove we see them backtrack on their words. let's finish up with some news that in brief now in iceland new fisher house opened up near a volcano just 32 kilometers from the country's capital hundreds of hikers visiting
